Santa Speedo Dash for Diabetes

 

Dear Santa Speedo Dashers,
 
Thanks to all who participated in the 5th Annual Santa Speedo Dash!   In 2016, the event attracted over 235 race participants and raised approximately $34,000 to help fund the programs and services of the Central Ohio Diabetes Association.
 We could not have had such success without you.

The Dash is comprised of participants who run a winter 5K, or walk one mile, in either a speedo or holiday-themed-attire (encouraged; not mandatory). CODA’s Young Professionals Against Diabetes (YPAD) started the Santa Speedo Dash event in 2012.  Since then, the event has become one of the most infamous fun runs in Central Ohio. 

 For more information on how you can be involved or sponsor the 2017 event, please contact Candice Hines LaFramboise at 614-884-4400 or chines@diabetesohio.org.

Help us celebrate the sixth year of the Santa Speedo Dash and help to raise funds for our programs and services.

Why?

All proceeds benefit the Central Ohio Diabetes Association, a local 501 (c) (3) organization.  Your dollars help kids learn to live well with the challenge of diabetes through kid's camp; they help people of walks of life, all income levels to detect diabetes and live well with the condition.
